Episode Summary

EDIT
King for a Day / Sad King Ott's Daughter / Rain for Roo
AIRED:
King for a Day Gumby stumbles upon the good king's book and finds that Ott is unhappy because, for some vague reason, he has to defeat a knight in a duel or move out of town. He's too smart to risk his own sorry butt, and so are his subjects, but Gumby has something they don't a water pistol. During the duel, Gumby squirts the knight in the eyes, hoping to blind him or something. Unfortunately, it's ineffective, and he's knocked off his horse. He tries again with grape juice, which attracts a small swarm of bees into the knight's helmet. He staggers away to have a nice allergic reaction, and Gumby takes over the kingdom for a day. Sad King Ott's Daughter: It's the world of tomorrow, where you can buy just about anything from vending machines! Like Morphs! Gumby and Pokey decide to buy a morph, just to see what it is. Turns out it's a small ball that you can command to turn into anything. This couldn't have come along at a better time, because King Ott's daughter has been stolen away by the Black Knight, who plans to marry her against her will. Gumby sends them a gold cup as an early wedding present. While the knight sleeps, Gumby uses his radio wristwatch to command the morph to turn into an elephant and save the princess. Gumby and Pokey are given a magnificent feast as their reward. Beware clay figures bearing gifts. Rain for Roo: Gumby has decided to be the smartest person alive, as evidenced by the graduation cap he wears in every single scene. When Cad Waliter hears Gumby brag about his knowledge of rain, they go to Roo to help a surprisingly angry and vengeful King Ott seed some clouds to make it rain on the parched kingdom. Unfortunately, Gumby uses a bit too much dust, and what do you know, soon several feet of mud rain upon the land. King Ott banishes Gumby to the dungeon, but he has a change of heart when Gumby mentions that the mud is very rich in iron. Suddenly, the fact that his kingdom is buried in mud doesn't matter, and Gumby is celebrated as a hero.moreless
